Vying for the presidency
The corporate world in 1953, when manufacturing industry jobs were a force in the American economy. William Holden's great speech at the end to board of directors was and still is inspiring and meaningful. Corporate cost cutting of innovation and ideas, not reinvesting profits for research and innovation, in favor of inflating stockholder dividends, meant stagnation then, and still does. Now just as then, companies needed to create quality products and services, and pursue growth in order to survive among the competition.
